Good by my old friend I will never know you again. Hello my new friend, it is nice to see you again.
The old year is almost over. A sizable chuck of the world is making a big deal about the new year. When I examine this concept I find it a bit hard to swallow. A year is just a measurement of time. The only time that really exists is now. So why do people make a big deal over a measurement of something that is not even real. Meanwhile we squander away the present moment contemplating our regrets of the past measurement and our desires for the new measurement. We resolve to do something different in the new measurement! Why should it take the new measurement to do something better or different? This seems shallow and insincere to me. Be the change now whenever that moment happens to fall.
Tonight I will were a silly hat, make noise and witness the beginning of a new measurement with my family. In just a moment I am going to sit in the lotus posture and stare at the wall for a while.
Happy new measurement to all!
